Amber Dentz, O.D.
I have been practicing optometry in the lake country area since I graduated from Optometry School in 2001. I grew up in East Troy, WI and graduated Valedictorian of my class in 1992. I then attended The University of Wisconsin-Madison and received my Bachelor of Science in 1996. GO BADGERS!!! Instead of heading right to graduate school, I took a year off and moved to Portland, OR where I worked for an optometrist and explored up and down the west coast! In 1997 I started Optometry School at Indiana University-Bloomington and graduated with high honors in 2001. During school I was chosen to be an assistant instructor for a number of classes and received awards in academics and contact lens expertise.
I am a proud member of the American Optometric Association and the Wisconsin Optometric Association. I have served on the Wisconsin Optometric Association Board of Directors since 2009, I am currently the President Elect, and will serve as President in 2020 (I thought that was appropriate!). In 2010 I was extremely honored to receive the WOA Young Optometrist of the Year award from my peers! I enjoy volunteer work, so I participate in a program that performs vision screenings at Special Olympics events, in addition, I frequently lead local vision screening programs. I also love to volunteer at my children’s schools in Hartland and sponsor numerous programs there as well.
I live in Hartland with my husband, Aaron; two children, Lauren and Brody; and two dogs. I enjoy downhill skiing, golfing, walking, and yoga. I enjoy traveling and I especially love spending time with my wonderful family and friends!
